The Asia Foundation, with a US$3.3 million grant from Google.org, Google’s philanthropic arm, will implement this project, focusing on closing the digital gap across ASEAN.

All training courses are free of charge and to be carried out online, for now, to maintain social distancing amid the coronavirus resurgence. Face to face training is also planned to conduct later. Those who are enthusiastic in this webinar can register through http://bit.ly/GoDigitalMM.
